Léaud starred in four more Truffaut films depicting the life of Doinel, spanning a period of 20 years. Léaud also acted in films by other influential directors, such as Jean-Luc Godard, Bernardo Bertolucci, Aki Kaurismäki and more recently Olivier Assayas.

    François Truffaut, une autobiographie
    Truffaut kept everything, from notes made on bits of paper to the numerous drafts of each of his scripts, and photographs of those dear to him. This «autobiography» sets out to highlight the director's recurrent themes, as they appear in film after film: childhood, apprenticeship, the conflictual relationships between men and women, death. The film leaves commentary to those, including a number of figures, who knew him well, in his work, in his life and for whom he was a source of admiration.

    A Girl Is a Gun
    Billy the Kid (Jean-Pierre Leaud), is both ruthless and bumbling in this impressionistic French-made western. Ruthless, in that he tracks down a witness to a robbery and kills him in cold blood. Bumbling, in that he literally stumbles over things throughout the film. He is also lucky, one might add, as instead of exacting revenge as she had planned, the bereaved girlfriend of a man he has shot walks off into the fabled sunset with Billy. (the auteurs)
